I got this pretty fabric many-many months ago:
It was a leftover piece, and I spent only $3 and some change on it. In the back of my mind I always knew that I wanted to make pillow covers out of it. I just never had time. But it seems like so many of you on blogosphere are doing something house-related - buying and selling, getting new fridges or mattresses, creating amazing quilts and other little trinkets to make your life and habitat a little prettier and easier.
Well, what can I say? You inspired me to dig through my stash (that and trying to clean the "dreadful room". Still work in progress...). When I stumbled upon this fabric piece, I got giddy with excitement. It's exactly what I needed to bring some color and spring mood into our house. They turned out better than I thought(the green one is a $3 Ikea cover):
Oh, how much I like this ikat print. Yum! These are very simple pillow covers (I made two but only one is shown on the pic above). I did add a zipper on the side which in itself was quite a sewing achievement for me. Hey, all of you, sewing ninjas, no laughing! The girl is learning here :) My lines actually look pretty straight. Ha! (I said, no laughing!):
I'm so in love with them. They just scream fun and make me wanna break into dancing. More so, this small project inspires me to make more, to create more. Maybe, even more sewing, who knows (don't count on it too much :)
I really like how this previously boring, bland room slowly comes together and reflects our bright and funky personalities and my love for color. And if you flip the pillow, it looks kind of different:
Which side do you like more??
